Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, November 2018 Solicits: 29 Creators on 28 Books

When the November solicits were released last month, it looked like Marvel was taking a big step in terms of representation and were moving toward finishing the year on a high note. Then things changed. The numbers didn’t crater by any means, but a big jump got noticeably smaller. It’s an odd set of circumstances,Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics Watch, November 2018 Solicits: 29 Creators on 28 Books”

Women at Marvel Comics Watch – October 2016 Solicits, 33 Women on 24 Books

Marvel’s really on a roll with female creators right now. I mean, they still represent a small minority of Marvel’s overall number of creators, but the numbers are much higher than they used to be. Consider this: Marvel’s October 2015 solicits had only nine different female creators in the mix. NINE. A year later, MarvelContinue reading “Women at Marvel Comics Watch – October 2016 Solicits, 33 Women on 24 Books”

Women at Marvel Comics Watch – September 2016 Solicits, 33 Women on 23 Books

When Marvel posted 34 different female creators in their August 2016 solicits, I thought that the number would be hard to match when next month’s batch dropped. Turns out, I was right, but in the best way; Marvel didn’t quite hit 34 different female creators again, but they did hit 33 and that’s pretty impressive.Continue reading “Women at Marvel Comics Watch – September 2016 Solicits, 33 Women on 23 Books”

Marvel’s on quite a run right now, hitting some of the highest numbers of female creators they’ve ever had over the past six months.

Lots of women are working on lots of fantastic books atContinue reading “Women at Marvel Comics Watch – August 2016 Solicits, 34 Women on 28 Books”

Women at Marvel Comics Watch – July 2016 Solicits, 25 Women on 18 Books

Just as we missed the first month of “Rebirth” at DC because I was busy travelling and being a bad blog person, we also skipped the first month of Marvel’s Civil War II, with all of its various ┬ámini-series and tie-ins. The June numbers were strong, with 29 different female creators on 19 different books.Continue reading “Women at Marvel Comics Watch – July 2016 Solicits, 25 Women on 18 Books”

Women at Marvel Comics Watch – April 2016 Solicits, 33 Women on 24 Books

Usually my write ups for Marvel’s April solicits are a bit of a downer. Marvel often runs a special variant cover promotion in March that focuses on female creators and bumps up their numbers, and then everything falls back down to Earth in April. But not this April! Not only are Marvel’s numbers up afterContinue reading “Women at Marvel Comics Watch – April 2016 Solicits, 33 Women on 24 Books”

Women at Marvel Comics Watch – March 2016 Solicits, 27 Women on 21 Books

Continuing our upbeat start to the New Year, here are some more marginally decent numbers for female creators from a major comics publisher! These aren’t bananas high numbers or anything like that, just better than they’ve been. The room to grow remains ENORMOUS. Nonetheless, it’s Marvel’s best month in some time, and that is niceContinue reading “Women at Marvel Comics Watch – March 2016 Solicits, 27 Women on 21 Books”
